Windows 10 is officially here

July 29, 2015

I just saw this on my lower icon in windows 7. I did reserve my upgrade and will be installing it on a vm soon to test out. I have been reading a bit before doing the update as I like to slowly make my changes before I commit. I also like to test things before just making the jump to be sure things work fine.

Filament spool holder stand

July 25, 2015

I thought I post a few pictures of the filament holder I finally got done making yesterday. It took a few redesigns but I'm happy with it now. I actually didn't need this, but I saw many different crazy designs out there and I decided to make a simple one piece freestanding holder that didn't need extra parts printed or any nuts and bolts. All this needs is a sharpie or pen long enough to sit on the top of each post. That's it. I was also able to include a filament guide and a few holes to mount it on top of a Craftbot if I need it later. As you can see I went through a few versions before I got it done. Not unusual since I like to test different things to see which work best.

Camera DVR

July 22, 2015
I was playing around with a dvr and testing the web connection and I finally got tired of that thing. Apparently this is one of those software boxes that hardly if ever get any updates. The software on these things is so ugly it's not even funny. I was trying to just view part of a video for a certain time to test it out and it was just a chore just trying to choose the time slot which it didn't really do. I had to post about these as they are just very cumbersome to use even now. I got this thing a while back and even though the manufactured still shows it on there, there was nothing for it. This thing reminds me of all these android phones that just get cranked out in the thousands, sold and forgotten about after that so you never get any updates whatsoever. Pretty bad specially if you're talking about security products.
